    Strength:

    Cost & comfort. Aftercare & warranty issues very good (pedals beak a lot)

    Weakness:

    Pedals - got through two sets in 500 miles. No mudguards for wet commutes.

    Rides well on shorter commutes. Shocks take up most bumps. On longer routes and rougher roads, the suspension makes life comfortable but extra weight can become a drag. The bar ends are a welcome feature & allow a good riding position. Good support forum on the web.

    4) Great value for money

    Weakness:

    Not many considering the price. I would recommend upgrading the folding pedals but that's a small cost.

    Excellent bike for the money. Rides very well and a great gear set. Very good looking bike in silver.
